Jerry Carino of the Courier News chimes in with the list of New Jersey and New York players invited to next week’s Reebok All-American Camp in Philly. Click here for the entire list of 140 campers at the event run by Chris Rivers. If Dominic Cheek of St. Anthony makes the USA U18 Men’s National Team (a safe bet at this point), he won’t be at the camp because he’ll be with the team.
New Jersey invites: Carl Baptiste, North Hunterdon; Dominic Cheek, St. Anthony; Fuquan Edwin, Paterson Catholic; Isaiah Epps, Plainfield; Sterling Gibbs, Seton Hall Prep; Tyrone Johnson, Plainfield; Shaquille Thomas, Paterson Catholic; Aaron Walton, Camden
New York invites: O.D. Anosike, Chris Coleman, Trevor Dillard, Tobias Harris, Omari Lawrence, Kevin Parrom, Michael Poole, Nkereuwem Okoro and Sherrod Wright.
National names: Renardo Sidney, Kenny Boynton, Abdul Gaddy, Richard Howell, Brandon Knight, Clarence Trent, Dominic Cheek*, Ari Stewart*
*If they don’t make the U18 team.
